I honestly didn't see the reason for a movie of Downton Abbey to exist, but now I get it.

While it doesn't offer much for those not familiar with the show, seeing the characters again feels like greeting old friends for those who watched all six seasons.

Revelations are made, storylines from the TV show are closed and, as always, life goes on at Downton. It all feels very familiar but like a comforting cup of tea, very welcome.

A reunion in the best sense: Nearly two dozen characters...each get a welcome moment in the spotlight; some to say apparent goodbyes, others to leave tantalizing hints of yet another return as the clouds of...War gather on the Hampshire horizon.

Established fans will have their joy solidified even further, and first-time viewers may be persuaded to go back and watch the show from the beginning. That's a win for everyone.

This is basically a high-toned soap opera, but it is not overly serious. It is largely a comedy of manners. There is plenty of humor and high spirits in this story and the acting is excellent. The production values are first-rate.

[F]or those who followed the British period TV series which ended in 2015, there is plenty of nostalgia and fan service.

As a feature-length movie, the film falters on a few levels, but, as the end of an era and a final goodbye, it hits all the right notes. It's extravagant, rich and exactly what you'd expect on a trip to Downton Abbey.

The series was less about affirming a reality than about longing for an ideal. This coda imagined by Fellowes is honest with its own evocation. [Full Review in Spanish]

The series transitions to the big screen well, even the theme song and the castle seem bigger and grander on the big screen. It's easy to get swept up in the spectacle of it all.

Romantic, gorgeous costuming, stunning sweeping cinematography. Maggie Smith steals the show!

Newbies will still be able to enjoy the lighthearted fare however, those familiar with the series created by Julian Fellowes will benefit the most. A real treat for fans.
